The Concept of Peace (August 2019)
What makes people hate and kill each other like this? Of course, there are many reasons, but religious differences are almost always connected. This was true with the Gulf War, which was fought over oil. It is true with the Arab–Israeli conflict over control of Jerusalem. When racism uses religion as a pretext, the problem becomes extremely complex. The evil ghosts of the religious wars that we thought had ended in the Middle Ages continue to haunt us in the twenty-first century.
Religious wars continue to occur because many politicians use the enmity between religions to satisfy their selfish designs. In the face of political power, religions often waver and lose their way. They lose sight of their original purpose, which is to exist for the sake of peace. All religions have a responsibility to advance the cause of world peace. Yet, lamentably, we see that religions instead become the cause of conflict. Behind this evil we find the machinations of politics, with its power and money. The responsibility of a leader, above all else, is to keep the peace. Yet leaders often seem to do the opposite and lead the world into confrontation and violence.
Leaders use the language of religion and nationalism to hide their selfish ambitions. Unless their hearts are set right, countries and nationalities will wander in confusion. Religion and love of one’s nation are not evil in their essence. They are valuable if these impulses are used to contribute to building a global human community. When the claim is made that only a particular religion or ethnic group is right and when other religions and ethnic groups are treated with disdain and attacked, religion and love of nation lose their value. When a religion goes so far as to trample on others and treat other religions as worthless, it no longer embodies goodness. The same is true when love of nation is used to emphasize the righteousness of a person’s own country over others.
The truth of the universe is that we must acknowledge each other and help each other. Even the smallest animals know this. Cats and dogs do not get along, but if you raise them in the same household, they embrace each other’s offspring and are friendly toward each other. We see the same thing in plants. The vine that winds its way up a tree depends on the trunk to support it. The tree, however, does not say, “Hey, what do you think you’re doing, winding your way up my trunk?” The principle of the universe is for everyone to live together, for the sake of one another. Anyone who deviates from this principle faces certain ruin. If nationalities and religions continue maliciously to attack each other, humanity has no future. There will be an endless cycle of terror and warfare until one day we become extinct. But we are not without hope. Clearly, there is hope.
I have lived my life without ever letting go of that hope and always kept alive the dream of peace. What I want is to wipe away completely the walls and fences that divide the world in myriad ways and to create a world of unity. I want to tear down the walls between religions and between races and fill in the gap between the rich and the poor. Once that is done, we can reestablish the world of peace that God created in the beginning. I am talking about a world where no one goes hungry and no one sheds tears. To heal a world where there is no hope, and which is lacking in love, we need to go back to the pure hearts that we had as children. To shed our desire to possess ever-increasing amounts of material wealth and restore our beautiful essence as human beings, we need to go back to the principles of peace and the breath of love that we learned as we were being carried on our fathers’ backs.
Duality in the Created World (July 2019)
How can we know the divine nature of the invisible God? One way to fathom His deity is by observing the universe which He created. Thus, St. Paul said: Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Rom. 1:20 – Just as a work of art displays the invisible nature of its maker in a concrete form, everything in the created universe is a substantial manifestation of some quality of the Creator’s invisible, divine nature. As such, each stands in a relationship to God. Just as we can come to know the character of an artist through his works, so we can understand the nature of God by observing the diverse things of creation.
Let us begin by pointing out the common elements which are found universally throughout the natural world. Every entity possesses dual characteristics of yang (masculinity) and yin (femininity) and comes into existence only when these characteristics have formed reciprocal relationships, both within the entity and between it and other entities.
For example, subatomic particles, the basic building blocks of all matter, possess either a positive charge, a negative charge or a neutral charge formed by the neutralization of positive and negative constituents. When particles join with each other through the reciprocal relationships of their dual characteristics, they form an atom. Atoms, in turn, display either a positive or a negative valence. When the dual characteristics within one atom enter into reciprocal relationships with those in another atom, they form a molecule. Molecules formed in this manner engage in further reciprocal relationships between their dual characteristics to eventually become nourishment fit for consumption by plants and animals.
Plants propagate by means of stamen and pistil. Animals multiply and maintain their species through the relationship between males and females. According to the Bible, after God created Adam, He saw that it was not good for the man to live alone. (Gen. 2:18) Only after God created Eve as Adam’s female counterpart did He declare that His creations were “very good.” 2(Gen. 1.31)
Even though atoms become positive or negative ions after ionization, each still consists of a positive nucleus and negative electrons in stable unity. Similarly, each animal, whether male or female, maintains its life through the reciprocal relationships of yang and yin elements within itself. The same holds true for every plant. In people, a feminine nature is found latent in men and a masculine nature is found latent in women.
Moreover, every creation exists with correlative aspects: inside and outside, internal and external, front and rear, right and left, up and down, high and low, strong and weak, rising and falling, long and short, wide and narrow, east and west, north and south, etc. The reason for this is that everything is created to exist through the reciprocal relationships of dual characteristics. Thus, we can understand that everything requires for its existence a reciprocal relationship between the dual characteristics of yang and yin.
However, there is another pair of dual characteristics in reciprocal relationship which are even more fundamental to existence than the dual characteristics of yang and yin. Every entity possesses both an outer form and an inner quality. The visible outer form resembles the invisible inner quality. The inner quality, though invisible, possesses a certain structure which is manifested visibly in the particular outer form. The inner quality is called internal nature, and the outer form or shape is called external form. Since internal nature and external form refer to corresponding inner and outer aspects of the same entity, the external form may also be understood as a second internal nature. Therefore, the internal nature and external form together constitute dual characteristics.
Let us take human beings as an example. A human being is composed of an outer form, the body, and an inner quality, the mind. The body is a visible reflection of the invisible mind. Because the mind possesses a certain structure, the body which reflects it also takes on a particular appearance. This is the idea behind a person’s character and destiny being perceived through examining his outward appearance by such methods as physiognomy or palm reading. Here, mind is the internal nature and body is the external form. Mind and body are two correlative aspects of a human being; hence, the body may be understood as a second mind. Together, they constitute the dual characteristics of a human being. Similarly, all beings exist through the reciprocal relationships between their dual characteristics of internal nature and external form.
What is the relationship between internal nature and external form? The internal nature is intangible and causal, and stands in the position of a subject partner to the external form; the external form is tangible, resultant, and stands in the position of an object partner to the internal nature. The mutual relationships between these two aspects of an entity include: internal and external, cause and result, subject partner and object partner, vertical and horizontal. Let us again use the example of a human being, whose mind and body are his internal nature and external form, respectively. The body resembles the mind and moves according to its commands in such a way as to sustain life and pursue the mind’s purposes. Mind and body thus have a mutual relationship of internal and external, cause and result, subject partner and object partner, vertical and horizontal.
Similarly, all created beings, regardless of their level of complexity, possess an intangible internal nature, which corresponds to the human mind, and a tangible external form, which corresponds to the human body. Within each being, the internal nature, which is causal and subject, commands the external form. This relationship allows the individual being to exist and function purposefully as a creation of God. Animals live and move because their bodies are directed by an internal faculty corresponding to the human mind, which endows them with a certain purpose. Plants maintain their organic functions by virtue of their internal nature, which also operates like the human mind in some respects.
The human mind imparts to every person a natural inclination to join with others in harmony. Likewise, positive ions and negative ions come together to form particular molecules, because within every one of them exists a rudimentary internal nature that guides them toward that end. Electrons assemble around nuclei to form atoms because they possess an attribute of internal nature which directs them toward that purpose. According to modern science, all particles that constitute atoms are made up of energy. For energy to form particles, it, too, must possess an internal nature which directs it to assume specific forms.
Probing deeper still, we search for the Ultimate Cause which brought this energy, with its elements of internal nature and external form, into existence. This being would be the First Cause of all the myriad things in the universe. As the First Cause, it must also possess the dual characteristics of internal nature and external form, which stand in the position of subject partner to the internal natures and external forms of all beings. We call this First Cause of the universe God, and we call God’s internal nature and external form the original internal nature and original external form. As St. Paul indicated, by investigating characteristics that are universally present in the diverse things of creation, we can come to know the nature of God: God is the First Cause of the entire universe and its subject partner, having the harmonious dual characteristics of original internal nature and original external form.
We have already mentioned that entities require for their existence the reciprocal relationship between the dual characteristics of yang and yin. It is only natural to surmise that God, the First Cause of all things, also exists based on the reciprocal relationship between His dual characteristics of yang and yin. The verse “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Gen. 1:27) supports the idea that God, as the subject partner, has dual characteristics of yang and yin in perfect harmony.
What is the relationship between the dual characteristics of internal nature and external form and the dual characteristics of yang and yin? God’s original internal nature and original external form each contain the mutual relationship of original yang and original yin. Therefore, original yang and original yin are attributes of original internal nature and original external form. The relationship between yang and yin is similar to that which exists between internal nature and external form. Yang and yin thus have the following mutual relationships: internal and external, cause and result, subject partner and object partner, vertical and horizontal. For this reason, it is written in Genesis that God took a rib from the man, Adam, and created a woman, Eve, to be his helper. (Gen. 2.22) In this case, the yang and yin of God were manifested in masculinity and femininity.
A human being attains perfection when he centers his life on his mind; likewise, the creation becomes complete only when God stands as its center. Hence, the universe is a perfect organic body that moves only according to God’s purpose of creation. As one organic body, the universe should exist in a relationship of internal nature and external form, with God as the internal nature and the created universe as the external form. For this reason it is written in the Bible that human beings, who are the center of the universe, are created in the image of God. (Gen. 1.27) Because God exists as the subject partner having the qualities of internal nature and masculinity, He created the universe as His object partner with the qualities of external form and femininity. All of this is supported by the Bible verse which states, “man . . . is the image and glory of God.” (I Cor. 11.7) In recognition of God’s position as the internal and masculine subject partner, we call Him “Our Father.”
In summary, God is the Subject in whom the dual characteristics of original internal nature and original external form are in harmony. At the same time, God is the harmonious union of masculinity and femininity, which manifest the qualities of original internal nature and original external form, respectively. In relation to the universe, God is the subject partner having the qualities of internal nature and masculinity while the universe the object partner having the qualities of external form and femininity.
Ocean Providence - The Sea is the solution to Hunger (June 2019)
We have prepared a worldwide foundation. This is what I am thinking about: more than two-thirds of the Earth’s surface, more than 70 percent in the ocean. What would we do if our land-based food resources diminish? We will have to turn to the oceans and catch our food there. We really will have no choice but to come up with a solution for human survival depending on the sea. For this reason, the logical conclusion is that, from this time forth, those nations with large ocean areas will have an advantage, particularly in terms of marine products-related industries, and nations with less ocean area will be at a disadvantage.
In the future world, it will be necessary to industrially develop the resources of the world’s oceans. We have in mind to create a variety of enterprises that will embrace all aspects of the fishing industry ranging from the manufacture of large scale fishing boats to the construction of fish hatcheries and farms. In the future, the sea will supply food to many of the world’s people. Naturally, the development and cultivation of the sea will truly become a preferred method for bringing an end to the starvation that plagues humankind.
The resources for humanity’s future are buried in the sea. The resources found on the land’s surface are reaching their limits and cannot last for long. They will be exhausted in a few short years. The challenge becomes how to recover the resources hidden away in the oceans. In the future, humanity must research the development of tundra plains. It is this future world where my interest currently lies. The food resources on land will not last for more than fifty years. In a few decades, this reality will rise up and hit us in the face. We must prepare for that time.
Americans do not really recognize the abundance of sea-based food resources. They really have little idea of the quantity of fresh fish jumping and splashing about. Most people like eating beef, but cattle’s natural aversion to death causes their blood to coagulate and become all knotted up when slaughtered. Thus, people are eating beef embedded with many toxins and negative elements.
The raw materials that we can get from dry land are limited but those that come from the sea are unlimited. One female fish can lay several million eggs. It is in this sense that the raw materials of the sea are unlimited. If these eggs are hatched artificially, it is possible to hatch up to 100 percent of the eggs. By correctly adjusting the feeding process and the input of other raw materials it is possible to propagate unlimited raw resources from the sea. That’s only possible with the ocean, and that is why I am thinking about marine commerce.
Every year, 20 million people die of starvation. That is 60,000 people a day. Is the President of the United States going to take responsibility for that? Will the Soviet Union take responsibility? Who will take responsibility for this? Who in the world is going to do that? For this reason, all our work with the sea is something we have been planning and preparing for.
The primary resources in the sea are unlimited. One fish lays millions of individual eggs. Normally these eggs are eaten up by other fish and creatures in the sea. If they were protected under human control, the supply of these resources would be unlimited and always available. Also, it is now possible to connect even the mountains with the sea by piping systems, and there, above our cities, make high-elevation tanks where unlimited numbers of fish can be raised. The way I see it, this is the only viable way that humankind will be able to solve the food supply problem. That is why we will invest billions to develop this area.
That is also the reason why I have a keen interest in the field of ocean industries. The sea has unlimited resources. If little baby fish remain in the open sea, then most will be eaten by larger fish. But if we cultivate fish, it is possible to have up to 90 percent survive. This naturally becomes an unlimited resource. The only means to solve the future food supply problem will be through the cultivation of fish.
Salmon live in the ocean but they swim up to freshwater to breed, don’t they? What we need to do is to make fish farms and raise the freshwater fish in saltwater and saltwater fish in freshwater. Do you know why? We cannot catch and eliminate parasites one by one. So, to kill them off, we move those fish that were living in the seawater to freshwater. By the end of a month, the parasites will all be dead. This is simple to do. If we exchange them every two weeks, we can do it as much as we like. It is possible to control this kind of process. We just do it by swapping the freshwater fish and the saltwater fish. That is the reason you cannot compare the output you get from a ranch or farm that uses the land for production. In other words, in the future, we will have access to inexhaustible, unlimited resources.
By using fish as the basic food source, we can have access to unlimited resources and produce as much food as we like. In the future, fish cultivation will not take place only in the sea; seawater will be pumped up to land areas using pipes, just as oil is pumped hundreds of miles in Alaska. Even with distances of hundreds of kilometers, it is possible to pump seawater up through pipes, make saltwater ponds, and raise large quantities of fish. Fish offspring are virtually unlimited. By raising great quantities of fish, we create a huge food supply. If we make a seawater reservoir for each village or community then everyone in that community can have enough food to eat.
In the future, it will be possible to move water from the Pacific Ocean for hundreds of miles in order to use it for fish cultivation. We are at that point now. In this way, we can also move living fish and we don’t need many people to do it either. We can build a ‘fish building’ and devise a completely automated system where it is only necessary to push the right button to supply feed to the fish, to sort them out according to size, to have them loaded on trucks and delivered ready for eating. That time is coming.
We can obtain tens times more benefit by cultivating sea industries than by raising cattle on ranches and farms hundreds of miles wide, and then selling the cattle, or by milking them and selling the milk. Because of the times we live in, we can move seawater anywhere. Humankind has now arrived at the time when it is possible to move sea water for hundreds or even thousands of miles simply by laying and using PVC pipes. Such a method is not expensive. It is quite possible to construct a cultivation building in the mountainous areas of continental regions, bring up water from the Pacific Ocean and raise any kind of fish there. You can construct a building ten or twenty stories high, raise the fish in it, and you wouldn’t even need people to go up there to look after the fish. You could raise the fish just through a remote monitoring system. By simply pressing buttons you could automatically feed the fish, separate grown fish from the smaller ones and send them downpipes to another location.
By understanding how the more expensive fish species, such as tuna, striped bass, salmon, croaker or flounder, behave in different seasons, they can be caught year round. By matching the fish catch with the seasons and the movement of fish throughout the oceans, fish can be caught in every month of the year and the fishing community can maintain a livelihood and solve the economic question as well.
It is in this area that we find the global economic base that in the future will decide whether the ocean industries will thrive or whether they will collapse. That is how I see it. There is no other reasonable conclusion.
If you compare the creatures living on land to creatures living in the ocean, which group is the largest in number? There are about 7 billion people living on this Earth but there are hundreds of billions of creatures living in the oceans. And what exactly are the oceans like? The waters from the Pacific Ocean in the east move to the Atlantic Ocean and the waters of the Atlantic move to the North Sea so that all the five great oceans are connected. The land on which we people live is also interconnected. However, where the land is connected two-dimensionally, the oceans are interconnected three-dimensionally. The waters of the Pacific move to the Atlantic and to the Mediterranean, in fact, to every place. We can conclude that by moving as one everything is interconnected as a whole, moving about with living energy.
From this point on, the time when humanity relies on the land-based resources will pass. A new era is coming when taking a leading position in the world will require having a leading position in the management of the world’s oceanic resources, through possession of the technology required to do so. The sea is a fundamental source of limitless raw materials. In the future, the era of just catching fish for food will also pass. We have to develop ocean agriculture and ocean farming.
King salmon is a species of the salmon family and there are five different kinds. This king salmon is the best kind of fish. However, they die right away once they lay their eggs. Of course, God would have designed things this way for the sake of their descendants but we are now at a time when we can artificially have fish produce the eggs and not die. If things change so that all salmon can come upstream every year to lay their eggs without dying, then salmon will become the number one food source for humankind. Salmon are a convenient food source. There is nothing like it. Even tuna sushi cannot be compared to salmon. King salmon tastes that good.
Currently, we are focusing our attention thinking about how to deal with humanity’s future food problem. Because tuna are swimming so fish, once you raise a large number of them and release them into the ocean, after two months they become impossible to catch again. The average cruising speed for tuna is 35 kilometers per hour but when they swim fast they can race up to 100 kilometers per hour. They are the fastest fish in the sea. They are just so amazing, so beautiful. When they swim, their dorsal fins lay right down and fold into their bodies. When their pectoral fins spread out they get stuck to the other tuna. They become just like a torpedo. Tuna travel throughout all the five oceans. When we master the unlimited spawning of these fish and release them into the seas then we will solve the problem of food. We will also solve the problem of pollution.
You know that one-third of the Earth is land and two-thirds of the Earth is sea, don’t you? Human beings can eat just about everything that lives in the ocean. We can eat almost all the different kinds of seaweed that grow in the ocean. By contrast, we cannot eat all the grasses or trees that live on land. And the ocean contains almost everything that the land has. There are sea cows, seahorses, sea lions and sea tigers, and even sea snakes. And what about all the different kinds of fish? Generally speaking, Caucasians like to eat meat from land animals but they shy away from fish because they do not like the smell. But recently, Americans are starting to say, “Hey, fish is really good! It’s better than beef or pork; it has all the right proteins.” They are attracted to natural foods now and so they want to eat fish in order to live for a long time. This just goes to show how rich the ocean is; there is great wealth within the oceans.
A family can easily be supported through fish farming. A mere fish farm could feed an entire family. By farming a large number of fish a family can create a good food supply. Also, fish are very nutritious. Fish protein is superior in many ways. With fish then, it is possible to solve the global food problem. Fish that are swimming and splashing about in the ocean become powder in less than ten minutes once they enter the factory. Temperature differentials between the ocean and the fish hold on boats promote decay within ten minutes due to bacteria. That is why we need technology that can allow processing within minutes. The fish powder is a very high-quality protein. It is from 86 to 94 percent protein. It is the finest quality. By reducing the percentage of powder used, unlimited quantities of fish and animal feed can be produced and used for farming more fish in order to produce more food.
The sea is a world treasure containing two-thirds of the world market of raw materials. Don’t you think so? Are there diamond mines in the ocean? There are twice as many diamonds under the ocean as there are on land. From the point of view of our work of carrying out God’s restoration providence based on His will, I estimate there are twice as many diamonds in the ocean. Furthermore, in the sea, we also find seaweed and fish and this can all be used as food. The ocean area covered by seaweed is about twice as vast as the land mass. And the supply of fish is almost limitless. If I think about these kinds of things then does it surprise you that I am interested in fish? Anyone who thinks about these things is going to be much more interested in the ocean than the land. So, we need to catch fish and sell them and transport the natural resources that we find in the ocean. That is why we are seeking a leading position in each sector of the transportation industry, on the land, in the ocean, and in the air.
From this time on the era when land resources are most important will start to fade. A new era is starting; one in which the world will be led by those who take care of ocean resources on the global level, by those who have that technology, by those who have leading positions in the oceanic world. That is what the ocean is: the root source of unlimited resources. Because of this, the era of catching fish simply to eat them will also pass away. We will need to expand ocean agriculture, ocean farming, and ocean development.
The Abundance of YOU
The amazing work of history and the providence by which humanity has grown since the prehistoric ages leave me hopeful and sometimes I can’t help but think that something went wrong right at the beginning of man’s apparition as a spiritual being. If that did happen, it is probably the cause behind the misery that plagues the world in ignorance and confusion right at the inception of our first establishments of societies. Today we live in a world somewhat comfortable but that can’t be said of every place on the planet. One important thing history can teach us: we human beings, we can make a difference. I will not elaborate too much on this segment report here but I will keep on the subject soon, telling you that you can actually set for your own fate if you only knew the one truth no one can deny, but no one has thought as invaluable enough to be the only fulfilling path to a life of achievements, for all with no exceptions.
What I mean by “no exception” is that we are all destined to depart from the world and that certainly does not exist in our conscience as something drastic or even something that bothers our ways of living every day. No one really thinks of departing the world while we live here in constant hope of achieving all that can be achieved and completed within our short days and years of living. In fact, we live to experience the constant desire to waking up to eternal thoughts of receiving that supreme energy we call “love”. The physical sun that is felt on our body has the same attribute of that spiritual emotional love that helps endure, transit and admire life on earth. We all have the same desire to express ourselves in the best of our abilities. There is, therefore, some kind of “abundance”, we all feel we deserve to have and if we were to talk about “eternity”, no one would consciously deny the existence of a greater “ME” just like there has got to be a greater world out there, where “ME” or “MYSELF” has got to be important. So what it is that makes YOU a unique individual, someone so special that if we really knew the potential we each have to experience life in its fullest, we would simply wake up in the morning and have a totally different interpretation to what we think about “fate” or “destiny”. We would wake up without the contradictory walls that elaborate on what others or society think of “me”. Instead, we would rather choose the path of knowing what our conscience is telling us directly and personally, like for example, the deep insights into what this surrounding universe really thinks of “YOU”.
So if you were to ask a tree, a flower or a dog, what he would think about you, what would be the reflection? It would be like making a beautiful painting or artwork and then asking the canvas its feeling or opinion. What would the answer be? In my opinion, it would reply by saying: “I am your reflection, what else would you like to know?”. Indeed the entire universe reflects us. Describing the beauty of the morning sun or sunset across the horizon would then mean describing yourself. YOU are the morning light, YOU are the colors of autumn, YOU are the beauty of everything that you see as beautiful. Why do you smile back at a child who looks strangely at YOU right in your face? YOU are that child if you have compassion. Someone helping a Grandmother crossing the street and you just happened to watch and react “oh what a nice moment” – YOU are that very moment if you just had the chance to appreciate it, that moment can become yours to keep. It means YOU are everything you see as beautiful and which harmonize with your senses of peace, joy, and kindness. If YOU can appreciate everything the Universe serves your senses with throughout the day, then YOU have made this day “your” day. It is that simple and based on that very simple principle you can start your journey in living in abundance and complete control of your destiny. Meaning that if you learn to listen to your own conscience in the ways of careful observation of the beauty that surrounds you, God Himself might just as well come right in and show you everything you will ever need to know about life. Even the greatest scientists have claimed to be their inspiration to be the real cause behind the discovery they have made. Much above mathematics or physics, exist the laws of beauty. The energy we so rightfully call “love” can only be generated through the duality of cause and effect that rules the universe. If “YOU” master these rules, you unknowingly and naturally control the entire universe. It’s a good thing that “YOU” are everything you need to be.
You are everything you need to be to succeed in becoming a perfect human being. We did talk a bit about perfection in segment 5 (Transitory Times and the Quest for Perfection). I often laugh when I watch the world proudest individuals who claim perfection based on physical achievements. We do not realize that perfection closely connects to a sense of deep joy, deep recognition that we a part of everything and that everything connects into one giant web where the center is in the actual purpose by which the entire universe was created. Call it any name you choose but our intellect intelligence is not conceived to realize eternity and to understand the oneness of God, so we human societies have conceived our philosophical or religious environment based on great people and reformers who have come throughout history to give us a sense a direction to a limited or symbolic understanding of what is true. Our geographical position is our knowledge of the interpretation of the truth. But today, just close your eyes and think of who you might be, and the answer will come flowing like a river to the sea. Because we live in a time where we are obligated by law to believe in written texts, it is very interesting to think that the greatest philosophical or religious influencers the world has seen, have always thought about “respect” as the base to all interactions. Based on that commonality just like the undeniable commonality and biological resemblance that we all came out of the mother’s womb, then here you have the absolute tool to absolute perfection, without exception of who you think you are in the past, the future or the present.
It is interesting to think that everything we do through every hour of the day, is based on the sole inner desire of the heart to accomplish a little goodness for a good feeling. We look for comfort, we look for health, we look for ways to make little dreams come true. But lots of us are struggling just to survive with daily life’s expectation and to make ends meet. Is there a secret to releasing all the daily stress to simply become independently happy? We do all look for the truth. In whichever levels we connect knowledge to, we always seem to aim to know what has happened and what will happen. These are horizontal thoughts that help us feed our curiosity and we are often struck with depending on other people’s teachings and information. The truth of is really right inside us all the time and a day of realization makes up for satisfaction. It is when inspiration takes the lead of our day that we step away from common struggles. Basically, we look for ways to an abundance and I have discovered that it starts with one simple thought.
Most of us end the day thinking about the duties of tomorrow and that’s fine. But what if there was a way to detach from all the expectations that social life ponders on our mind? What if there was a way to become bigger than life itself? There has got to be a process or a method. There is simple thought I find to be very helpful to embark anyone in an interesting path. This thought might as well be the answer to all and might control everything that surrounds you. You might even pull the universe to come and greet you every morning and night when you go to sleep. This thought might serve you to discover all there is to know about everything and anything. This thought might be all the abundance you will ever need to fulfill the life that you wish. In my life, it has made all the difference. It does not matter how great you think people are, whether it is your boss, a genius out there, a sports champion or movie star, by the application of that simple thought, you will become the greatest human being your ancestral lineage has ever seen. With that thought in your mind, whether you want it or not, you are born for greatness. Now I will attempt telling you what that thought really is.
Yes, I will attempt to express an inspiration that I have felt just be standing facing the universe on the cold winter balcony. It is really simple to reminisce that all you need to enter the safe spirit communicative zone of any situation out there, is a feeling of humility that translates into showing gratitude. We call this “respect”. “Respect” is all you actually really need to conquer the world. If you had a choice of swords to go into battle, the sword of “respect” would be the ultimate offensive and defensive weapon. Respect is what unifies everybody regardless. For example, the protocol of “respect” for the rules of sports allows the Olympic gathering phenomenon every 4 years. So what do I mean by “respect”? What does that word really employ or engage in?
As I mentioned “respect” is a sense of gratitude and humility towards something or somebody. It translates into “reverence” and “honor” and anything that gives place to showing gratefulness, goodness and even beauty while communicating. It goes very deep actually and would you know that without that it, it would be impossible to spend a day in peace. It is the only condition required of the universe for us to inherit everything goodness ever represents. Now, having said that, it might be that the word is left misunderstood and confused with a sense of fear that rings in the tone of absolute obedience. But that is not what “respect” really means.
Every you do in life is based on “respect”. From morning to night, when you wake up, clean your face, take the train, greet other people and watch your car, every single thing we do allows sustaining our life by maintaining order with our environment and others. We do that almost without thinking about it. The first education we give a child is to learn to care and be thoughtful or others and things given. This is who we are at the very origin of all of our behaviors. So if we do that naturally based on the consistency of our conscience, can you imagine what this can do, if we become a bit more creative and decide to build the concept of respect in all that we endeavor in life? Respect connects to beauty and so it connects to original love. That is why it is so powerful. It reaches the heart and mind of the worst to the best equally affected. This is why we love nature almost undoubtedly because the entire naturally created system is in the unconditional service of our body and life. The air, the water, our veins, our bones, the park across the street, the light and the deep colors of the universe, all is here to help us maintain a sense of self and to carry us through a life of accomplishment through the growth of our spirit. It is actually amazing to think about it. But then, would we realize as grown up, that if we gave value to the virtue of respect and a way to voluntary apply that to our life in full consciousness of what it means, then my friend, you have it and you are indeed the source of all there is in love and beauty and you then become a unique individual untouchable to anything but the center of it all. The day we conscientiously become the followers of the rule that governs us all by nature, it is the day we safely can get together to celebrate. It does good to an event like the Olympics for example, where everyone chooses to follow the rules of respect through sports. The Olympics by itself becomes a microcosm of what heaven should look like on earth. Can you imagine what that would do if all the religious leaders would put “respect” as the forefront of their teachings, you would then have peace within 5 minutes time. But starting with oneself, can you imagine what you could achieve if you would simply find rulings to your daily life to automatically change your entire environment, whether you want it or not? If we truly understood the concept of “respect” and apply it to a ruling protocol that we had no choice but to follow, then there would be no hungry children in the world today.
Transitory Times and the Quest For Perfection
I seldom rely on anyone for comfort or peace of mind and that has been the journey I have taken so far until this year 2018. Yes in this very year I have started seeing the wonders of things not perceived through the eyes of just the five physical senses that guide us through the winding road of our emotions each day. It has been a year of internal discoveries like I have never experienced before. It is not always easy to come to reflection each day of a busy schedule filled with “to-do” things, but I actually enjoy the moments of reflections much more than the thoughts of just having completed a job. It is when we start to care for others that life can really start to unveil its mysterious wonders and the respect of appreciating another can really acute the perception of wisdom when we pursue a mission, whichever size it is. It is actually impressive discovering that just one person can make a huge difference. I would add that if we could profoundly care in return to what life gives us every day, we would find ourselves living life in the fullest in real and meaningful terms. When we do transit to the next, regardless of the type of transiting, we discover how precious it is to have friends, because, at the end or the beginning of any journey, you greet hello or goodbye to those who have meant the world to you. And that becomes the celebration of what it all meant to be alive, on that planet, at that moment in time.
One way to expand into the future is to understand how to obliterate procrastination. The enemy of our thoughts often connects to an illusion of being lonely. How would you literally eradicate loneliness? You can by living in constant preparation for the next or the future. To prepare for something is actually quite entertaining and fulfilling. Have you ever been feeling suddenly alone at sunset when the sun goes down on you with all the reminder of what you should have done or what you wish you would be like as a human being? If it happens to me, I then try to prepare for the night. Then if you wake up early enough you can also prepare for the day. Everything we do is actually in preparation of something. Feelings of loneliness are often connected to a lack of assuming responsibility. The more responsible we become, the less concern of ourselves and those blue feelings are just not strong enough to break the wall of creativity. I think that because “creativity” connects to the purpose of being alive and that state of mind help channels this love energy we just can’t reject. Therefore living in a constant state of preparation might be the answer to becoming the most loving, creative and entertained individual on earth.
You take for example a “Samurai” who live in preparation of dying in battle anytime. He practices every day without restraint, repeating the same gestures over and over again and he never gets tired of it. Every time one act upon the thoughts of preparing for something, he/she feels like even nature participates. The ego often looses grounds in the face of morality wish never fails to step up through the efforts we make daily to improve, maintain or manage our situations. Humility and strength combined seem a virtue in the heart of those who seek the future in constant preparation of themselves. You come out of the gym feeling a new person or you set out to work with increasingly more confidence. The act of preparing is often more valuable to the soul’s memory than the resulting effect of completing a task. So what it is with our life? What are we preparing for?
It is simple. The more you discover, the more you mind and heart expand. But the universal rules of development is uncompromisingly strict. Unless you start living conscientiously for the sake of someone else, no growth will happen but only if you are still a child growing to adolescence. When the body reaches its pics of growth, it’s like being thrown out of a plane with 3 parachutes to choose from before landing on the ground. One will fall vertically straight giving you just enough time to see what’s really around you. The other parachute will descend a slight more perpendicular and you might actually feel the wind carry you in. The last parachute would descend almost horizontally where you can enjoy the scenery and visualize the landscape before reaching a destination of choice. It means that when the body reaches its pic of growth, it slowly starts its descend to becoming part of nature for then the spirit to learn to fly in order to map its journey to the next. Learning to walk is simple and automatic. But the beauty of human beings is that we were created with a responsible aptitude to produce ourselves the energy of love, not out of instinct but rather a creative desire to resemble God Himself.
If Love is the energy by which we conduct every single action of the day and by which our conduct define how much we can achieve with the simple act of taking action, then why are we struggling to the fulfillment of our purpose, whichever it seems to be. The quest for perfection can be said to be the quest for happiness. Why would someone need to be perfect? What would the end result of “being perfect” be? Can it be joy? Can it be a fulfillment of something that seems true? Whatever it is, we aim to discover the comfort of being. It is because we have a “body” that we would automatically look to the aim to grow and achieve completeness through time. Does the spirit need as much? If you stand in the rain for hours, it is the not the spirit that gets wet. The feeling of discomfort will make someone want to improve a situation. But what is perfection then? We know that physically, in sports, through hard training and stamina, one might be able to master a discipline to the point completeness. But since the body will one day decline, how long can one stay satisfied with living a life of physical discipline? If joy can be attained through the act of feeling comfortable in the heart, it might mean that the spirit itself is composed of a physical self, just as would be a physical body, then we would have a spiritual body too. (to be continued…)
So it is all very simple while we have a physical body to sustain and grow in the physical world, we must have a spiritual body to sustain into the spiritual realm I suppose. But would you say this is normal? When we do have emotions, will, and intellect, that makes us people, what happens when the physical body is detached from our mind at the moment of departure from life on earth? Furthermore and more interestingly, is that while we are here, a spiritual substance seems to be anchored with our body or else we would not be able to command the nerves of our system into the direction we wish them to go. Think about it, every time we make any action, it is a direct result of our thoughts. Whether happy or sad it reflects directly through our eyes, faces and body movements. How is that for energy? Energy is produced right out of our thoughts so that it immediately shows off through the physical realm of our body and environment. That is fascinating. Therefore the transition from one realm to another is as simple as me thinking and acting. When you think, you react, the body reacts, and then we take action. Therefore, when out of this world, onto the next, when we do think, the spiritual body also reacts and take action. The problem would then become obvious on whether someone has enough energy to move around, whether it be in the physical or spiritual realm. The beauty of our physical body here is that it has no choice but to operate under the property of time and so it exists accordingly to seasons and the rotation of the earth. However, when that disappears, and time is no more an issue, the soul’s will power is kept dependant on the substance that the spirit has accumulated while living on earth. These vitality elements have formed into the shape of our physical mind which becomes our new body in the next realm of life. This is to say that “perfection” is not relative to how “good” we are able to perform on earth, but rather, depends on the state of mind by which we accomplish everything here. The more unselfish a person becomes, the more beautifully perfect the soul becomes. (to be continued…
A child is perfect. Creation is perfect. You can pretty much predict the behavior of animals and the natural environment since you know that it works in harmony with the ruling of natural laws of the Universe. It is predictable in the way it behaves but it is unpredictable in the beauty that it creates. That is the magic of perfection in the creation. The one thing we miss to understand is that “perfection” produces “beauty only” and beauty transgress into love “only” when it is recognized. So the next time you think that something is wrong with you, thinking that you don’t have what it takes to become a perfected human being, think again. Nothing that we will ever materially or academically achieve in this world will make us perfect, even if one is a multiple gold medalist in the sports discipline. It is simply because nothing is greater than the joy produced by an act of goodness. An act of valor is often coming out of a state of virtue. A child grows into maturity but not into perfection. It means that in the realm of human behavior, perfection does not exist in knowledge or any physical achievement. Perfection only exists in the state or act that transpires into beauty which then produces that energy we call love. It means that someone is only perfect relatively to someone else’s appreciation. There is no mystery hidden in perfection and that’s good or else we wouldn’t be comfortable meeting. Perfection reflects only through clarity and transparency and the more simple one becomes the more mysterious he/she entertains. The doubts we hold on each other are simply cultivated by the judgemental ways of our imperfect adult life. Who would doubt a tree, a flower or a child?
Transitory time is everytime you think of the next. It is everytime an empty cup gets a refill. Transition to the next can happen at any moment. However, the inspirations we get are the bridges we build and the doors we open. To get inspired, one needs to repeat a task over and over, until it becomes perfection in the form one wishes to attain beauty. Therefore perfection has nothing to do with the technicality of a movement but rather it has to do with the value a movement produces. The more a movement is repeated the more it becomes a flow and the diversified the shape appears to be. I do speak about the effects of goodness. Everything that makes an individual improve personal conditions or relations with others is always considered good. It may start with a passion or a sports discipline. It may be just greeting the sun every morning or to give thanks to colleagues at work. But whatever it is, the perfection of oneself must connect to the purpose of our daily life on earth. The biggest star of all, perceptive to the eye is the sun and it shines for all to see. You perfect yourself when you perfect your day and if you think today was beautiful, then somewhat the transition to the next happens with you as the center. Of course, we all have our moments of misery and pain and we live in a world where sorrow can hardly be avoided. Those of us, who have the chance to be a bit more fortunate than others, our mission is simple and clear then. We might want to take on the task of the sun and try to shine a light in the life of others. Is it too much to ask? Are we concerned with the way others think of us or can we just split up from the old narrative of self-centeredness and start living a life of giving for a change. Artists are naturally blessed with passion. No one in the world would claim to be perfect, but yet every one of us are made to be God incarnated. So claim your title and transit to the most beautiful day of your life, every single day, as long as many sunrises there is left to see since compared to eternity, there are not too many.

Personal Expansion and Discovery
It is interesting to know that doing something repetitively every day can have the power to make you realize about the motion of time. I actually would like to be distracted every day because, in my understanding of human nature, we all want to have fun on a constant basis. If you had all the money in the world, how would you set your daily agenda to be? Of course, we all have a passion to fulfill somehow, and that is fantastic. But I think that what keeps a person on wanting to work hard towards a cause, has to do with an uncontrollable desire to wanting to expand and discover. That’s what life is about, expansion and discovery. We might have a beautiful set of occupations each day, we might have a life of routine or expectations, we might have all sorts of beliefs or philosophies, but ultimately, we look for the achievement of the purpose of our life. Why not start with one day at a time? Looking for the purpose of each day, just like treasure hunting does to a curious mind, might help us understand the meaning of why time passes, and where it is leading us. Take a notebook, and if you could find only one reason why today was worth living, right there, inspirations would poor in and come about, like rain from the sky. However, this is hard work. To make it is easier, Just try and write on the piece of A4 paper in big: “why today was worth living” – Then place the paper on your bed, and every time you go to sleep at night, just before pulling up the blanket, you would have to physically read that question at least once, and try to answer it before closing your eyes. Repeat this every day and I promise you, your life is going to change.
I think the ultimate growth in one individual depends much on how much one is willing to care for others. It always about communication and the ability to want to care. We are given the natural situation of being born of families and the concept does go well on that level. Parents live for their children and brothers and sisters learn to care for each other. But life brings us all to a point when the family has to expand beyond just blood relations. Because the mind and the heart want it that way. It can’t be satisfied unless it spreads towards more relations, more observations and more communications. We, consequently, live a life of daily expansion toward the present and the future exist only with the hope for growth and discovery. But what then would be the purpose of that? Why do we need to know more? Is it to satisfy our intellect? I think it is simple as what our heart and conscience are conceived of. It is really all about love and the desire to become ourselves, creator of our life and environment. Our conscience tells us to do good and to be good because the universe in which we live is perfectly good. The beauty of creation reflects easily into the conscience like a mirror to the point that when you become an observer of nature, you are actually simply looking at yourself. The circumstances in which we live can actually affect the verbiage of our conscience, and luckily the very first treasure we all hold from birth on planet earth is our common origin of water, which connects us all together. Personal real expansion starts with the understanding that one should respect another, unconditionally.
The “great respect” which everybody needs to feel, where does that come from? If you noticed, most conflicts start simply out of discrediting, defaming, undermining or dishonoring someone or something. It happens all the time and is the inception of feuds, disputes, and quarrels. I have done it so many time myself. You can argue all you want with someone but if you really want to stir up a fight, all you have to do is tell someone to go dance with himself. This ignorance of life most crucial virtue has categorized people into masters, servants or slaves, turning societies into an imaginary world where the ego of the strongest and richest becomes a status when anyone under the bar of one’s expectations becomes an inferior being. Now religions speak about “love” but where is that “love” if a leader disapproves others from thinking different than himself. Preponderance or dominance turns knowledge to ignorance. And the greatest of academics are often the stupidest of being you would ever meet. When someone lacks in respect, ignorance instills its obvious social abnormalities but everyone accepts it as truth. So it becomes ok for a leader to treat others like servants.
But what if every service that we conceive for others are based on the thought that life is learned by giving to others. The act of giving reflect upon the thoughts of wanting to share with others, the purpose of which everyone is endowed to achieve by all means, since happiness will only remain through the act of experiencing joy in the present. To create the present one needs to know that he/she must conceive a path of goodness that remains like a good perfume on the skin, always remembered and appreciated. The choice we make in spotting out ways to live for others, on a daily basis, will create fragrances that can last an eternity. It is actually not very complicated. People look for physical pleasures to fulfill their day to the fullest and one of them is food. Food is actually not an option to life ‘s survival. Everyone must eat. The magic of food is by the way it unconditionally adapts to our body, welcomed by billions of cells within. Aside from scientific explanation, food is the greatest unconditional love the body receives on a constant craving for more, every single day of our life.
That goes with everything else we experience through the five senses. That is just the basic school of life and the natural world feels like a mother. However, when life really happens, really gets grooving, is on the realization that our body is only the image of something so much more substantial and real, so much more magical and mysterious, and that is the “spirit”. Did you know that the spirit has its own body? The true expansion of one’s life starts with the discovery of what’s really out there. If you thought “space” was infinite with wonders, the world of your spirit is a zillion time greater than that. Even a rich man, fulfilled in business and wealth, will never go as far as his nose, thinking he has achieved greatness just because of the personal gain. It does not matter how rich or intelligent a person might seem to be, the resulting of life achievement is only for the spirit to decide at the end. The expansion starts at the discovery of the invisible world of substance, that lives right within yourself and encompasses the entire universe in the palm of your hand. The energy that love contains can only be captured through the eyes and heart of the spirit body.
It is simple. The more you discover, the more you mind and heart expand. But the universal rules of development is uncompromisingly strict. Unless you start living conscientiously for the sake of someone else, no growth will happen but only if you are still a child growing to adolescence. When the body reaches its pics of growth, it’s like being thrown out of a plane with 3 parachutes to choose from before landing on the ground. One will fall vertically straight giving you just enough time to see what’s really around you. The other parachute will descend a slight more perpendicular and you might actually feel the wind carry you in. The last parachute would descend almost horizontally where you can enjoy the scenery and visualize the landscape before reaching a destination and having to walk through it. It means that when the body starts its descend to becoming part of nature after it dies, then the spirit must learn to fly before then in order to map its journey to the next. Learning to walk is simple and automatic. But the beauty of human beings is that we were created with a responsible aptitude to produce ourselves the energy of love, not how of instinct but rather a creative desire to resemble God Himself. END
Water System at the Marine Foundation
Yes, Love is in the system. In every system created by our natural environment, including everything we see in space, love resides into it, just like water resides in the body. Amazingly obvious but unspoken of, science calls it “energy” and yet no one, not even Einstein could describe its constituency but only through its purpose of use. Try to explain to a square scientist, why you would get up one morning and kissed the sky good morning. It would be like trying to teach a fish how to walk. If there was no love in the created system of the universe, it would be like trashing your child ‘s first painting or drawing and telling him he is wasting his time. The reason a parent would never do such a thing is that everything relates to “purpose”. The creative impulse of building anything out of the material world relates to beauty and joy. The purposeful creation of the universe, therefore, has to do with an indescribable substance at the base communication of everything that moves.
From stardust to the smallest cell of the body, everything would fall apart, in a matter of seconds if the energy that lies in duality stopped existing. We identify good energies such as kindness, compassion, sympathy, courage, forgiveness, benevolence, humanity, miracle, gentleness etc… but yet scientists would have a hard time to truly visual this undetectable energy that brings alive all dualities in constant unstoppable motion, the very energy maintaining every system known to the natural world that surrounds us. Therefore, it is in the system that we might find the answers t life’s purpose and the multiplication of goodness is one of them. The greater the attributes of unconditional giving the greater the chances for large multiplication. When there are problems in marketing strategies or promotional works, it is often because the management has turned their eyes on personal profit rather than the longterm benefits of those who follow them. Everything received and earned as possession must be redistributed for it to exist. This is the law of nature and no one can overcome the force of that constant cycle, as our body eventually falls apart back to the heart of nature. If we are nature ourselves, we are also made of systems and going against it, regardless of how creatively one would think differently from others, at the base we are undeniably all conceived the same way. It’s in the system that love takes form, and if you were going to deny that nature is insensitive to love, try standing naked on the Antarctic ice or go without water of food for a 10 day period. You then suddenly understand that everything around you is made to bring your body happiness on a constant basis. The sun, the food, the water, it all becomes love and it is love. And you know it since you know how your body feels without it.
Marine Foundation was entirely created with its system in mind, knowing pertinently that if the system could resemble the way of nature, then it would profit everyone and everything that would come in contact with it. It took almost 20 years to design its content. The great painter Picasso said it would take a lifetime to learn to draw with the heart of a child. Beauty exists by simplicity, and cannot be defined in technical words. It is easy to understand and assimilate because love is the source of beauty. It just cannot be explained but you can pull it apart to anything that you want it to be, but cannot be scientifically (with mathematics) or religiously (with words) written. That’s why we need to blueprint of systems that can be can be explained and understood, and the base confirmed to a structure of the natural world where if you follow the rules you might come up to construct anything you might who to imagine. We call results which process of appearing cannot be explained “miracles”. Since our earthly system is miraculously established (we can’t explain its root energy), then anything and everything that anyone creates with a system that resembles the motion of the universe, will also create miracles. It’s a bit like a child who wants to play Mozart, and the parents gave him a violin. Then the child becomes virtuous. The violin is the system but the child’s talent is the mystery. So if there is indeed a creator of our earthly system, it must be set it up so that we, the children, can just utilize it to achieve beyond our own wildest imagination, if we keep to the purpose of life in the universe, teaching us that no happiness can be achieved unless we each learn to live for the sake of others, in the unconditional act of giving. (to be continued)
Would a person need to direct the food to his stomach before digesting it? Would a child need a teacher to tell him to be close to his mother? Everything in nature is programmed to work perfectly and everything you ever need to know in relation is thought by the conscience. The rest is up to us. We are the miracle. We are the absolute source system of life and relationship. Do not fear anyone or anything, as long as stay on the path, you will be protected. No governments, no conventional structures, no politics, no religions or cultures, no one, and nothing can stop the continuous growth of the Marine Foundation. It is because, within its systems unveils the purpose of creation, the purpose of all of us, the reason for living and passing. Marine Foundation has never been a person’s invention but rather the discovery that all of us, without exception, are the makers of miracles. Regardless of your riches, status, beliefs, no can escape the fact that true love will always have the final word. The teaching of “Absolute Respect for Life and Environment” is the base system structure for that energy to flow and just like water it creates, cleans and comfort. Water is made of pure, true love, and without it into your own body, your eyes would not exist to see, your tongue and lips would not exist to speak or to kiss your loved ones. Our waters connect to one another, so believe me when I say this, if you have the slightest words or acts of disrespect for anyone you meet or the nature you touch, your body and your conscience will be the first to complain and rebel against you, plotting to eventually scale you down to a dry old desert useless land.
True Love in the System Seminar - Content of Basic Thoughts
Ms. Yoko Akahane and Mr. Takuya Hasegawa both brand ownership members of the Marine Foundation are organizing a fantastic people for a Seminar on the topic of “love” saying “true love”, on the topic of how does Marine Foundation explains its philanthropy that base its philosophy on the attitude of total respect for one another. Lots of people are looking for answers to problems with relations and communications, which often are the reason why life simply seems unfair at times of difficulties. “Love” is often a topic of spirituality and does not often enter the realm of strategic development within a corporate body. But what if we did know that there could be internal laws and technologies, that would actually help change a life from on simple instant of realization. Its because corruption exists that the word “true” needs to be added to “love” or maybe because of the ignorance of the purpose of life that leads us to believe that Love is mainly a sexual act which makes people attracted to each other. But if we would consider nature as an ultimate teacher of what’s true in the original form of what is, then perhaps we would have a chance to discover the most inner secret of what love truly is.
I have always dreamed of going to places around Japan and just talk to people. Since my Japanese language skills are limited to trying to express my thoughts, I would surely need a good interpreter. Japanese people are so fine by me. Talking about love would almost be considered “taboo” in a society that lives on the “Philharmonic Concert Hall of Rigid Rules of Attitudes” where everything has to be programmed by the way things are thought by cultural habits and therefore staging almost no space to show your worth would you just try to play your scores differently. Love and relationships are often publicly taken in the context of religious beliefs and Buddhism would not really have you jumping up and down the alley, in the ways a good old revival chorus of the local gospel church would have you twist your body around to celebrate your heart. But even in Christianity, “Love” as beautiful attributed from the “Lord” have you understand that this concept often stays just within the assembly’s walls when as soon as stepping out of the circle of light, you start counting how many people you wish to hate the week ahead and that probably includes your boss or the colleague who does his work exceeding everyone else. Love express privately often relays to temporary romance or a sexual experience, and when you have a family, it expands in becoming responsible for somebody else. Women would have the advantage to remain loyal to their inner motherly duties while a man would keep pondering ways to get more pleasure out of an unsatisfying busy life.
So I took the books and society away and I gave in to contemplating nature for a change. And so, I started learning about “respect”. Surely, gradually and more profoundly I came to some realizations which no books had ever thought me before. I discovered that nature was in a constant state of celebration, from early morning to late at night, the planet is celebrating “life”. On that subtle discovery, my mind became entertained 24 hours a day, by something, I never felt existed before, but was there all around me in substance, although invisible to the eyes or untouchable to the body. Just like the unnoticeable air that we need it so much, love is for the spirit as substantial as water is for the body. And if we could just pay a little more attention to the evolution pattern that life unveils each day through the motion of nature, entertainment would take a whole new dimension in keeping you at the edge of your seat, if we could just teach science or philosophy from the standpoint that at the source of all natural energies, this “love” exists to makes particles and cells act the way they unconditionally do. The way that “love” manifests itself in science or religion relates to the fact that it is an indispensable tool to connect anything and everything to living a purposeful life on earth.
it’s amazing to say, but it is through nature that I have discovered the existence of someone higher, a creator may be, but there indeed and probably a GOD resembling more like real of a person just like you and me but in the difference of the magnitude “He/She” would represent in relation to the birth of creation and then the history of humanity. I found out that the whole truth lies within each and everyone’s heart to discover, not just by reading books of knowledge, but also through physical and mathematical observation of the world we live in. Marine Foundation is a social platform that welcomes every culture, every religion, every race, every color, and everybody. I take it that water is enemy to no one as from water, we all came from, and each our mother is the proof of that. I felt that if we kept ignoring or denying the origins of our birth, we would probably keep on missing out on the understanding of the value of our lives, where respect for one another should be thought the first rule incentive in communication before learning anything else.
It is through that biological resemblance that we could hope to think that we were all born under the same sun and moon. And just like every single atom in nature fulfill its role in perfect respect of its purpose, we would also become embodied into the purpose of what real life is meant to be, when love appears as simple and true as a friend who says “hello” or a leaf that fell sitting on the balcony, forever wondering if it would ever be noticed. True Love is as simple and beautiful as a handshake in slow motion. So if nature is sensible to Love, it might mean that nature is the real teacher of coexistence. No human being can argue with the wind of the rain and much less with a wild animal who looks for food. Since human being argues with each other based on thoughts, we should look into places on non-arguments based on nature’s fact to determine the value of our life. True love is probably hidden in places where arguments do not exist, and so the mother’s womb would be the ultimate and perfect place to start. We all came from it, without a doubt.
True Love overcomes time:
Time resembles eternity, that’s why it goes round and round. When you have not seen someone you love, for a long time, and when you see that person again, it feels as if it was yesterday. Sometimes, when you are having a wonderful moment, it looks as if time had just stopped and 5 hours would feel like 5 minutes. It is because each moment when love takes over, eternity unveils and time disappears. Therefore love overcomes time, it is that simple. To my understanding then, the only way to make time a worthy friend is to live a passion. Education should focus on passion. And the most interesting thing about time is that you can also help it spray its wings so that one day, feels like a thousand years. It can go both ways, in good and bad times. But really, take the misery out of this planet, and people would transit to the next world as a train would through a bridge. Nothing changes except the geography may be. And at the center of all your expectation, those you have ever loved will reappear as if you have never left them, even a second. So today please do take note of everything and anything that feels good to your heart, because that’s how eternity is created and I don’t think a day at the office, will be enough to satisfy that much… Unless of course, passion instills…
The Physics of Education and Celebration at Marine Foundation
The system of the Marine Foundation’s organizing principle is impregnated with 2 motivators. Education and Celebration. Education and celebration might not ring well as conventional social and corporate habits, but what else in the world would otherwise be more enjoyable than learning something new and spending valuable time with friends. Our mind works through constant questioning. We are being educated every single day of our life. Our mind craves for information and every time we learn something, a joyful energy comes out. This is love. Anyone who educates other creates love, love creates energy and the resulting phenomena produce results that call for celebration. How simple life really is, as designed 100% in its pure form to satisfy abundantly through the simple natural acts of learning and celebrating. The rest is just a distraction to me.
How would we create passion within a corporate environment? Again, Education and Celebration might then come to mind. For example, a leadership group might try to mesmerize their staff all the time with new information and create ways to celebrate every employee to each person feeling an equalization of status based on family relations. This would perfectly transform an atmosphere. These 2 life’s natural motivating incentives of learning and celebrating – will fusion the heart with passion where “routine work” itself would become secondary to the true purpose of one’s precious day. A trained manager may consider this a distraction away from focus, but with that kind of energy circulating around the office, time can finally stop and the desire to exceed becomes more exciting than the exit doors of Friday nights. When a family structured atmosphere is created out of the most rigid of corporate environments, relationships of the kind creates an energy that takes over the fear of competition and finally, everyone moves into an unbreakable chain of command where each person’s own conscience becomes his/her own true boss. How liberating.
I have tested this out in my own life. I once was working for a Japanese company where I was one of their only foreign full-time employees. I decided to test the environment to the point where I would be fearlessly breaking the rules of that corporate dictatorship of fearful moments each time the big boss walked into the floor. My strategy was first to become perfect at my tasks and after a couple of months, I heard the president said: “I wish all employees were like him”. It did make me smile, thinking to myself, “You’ve seen nothing yet!”. Then, I started to voluntarily break every office rule there was while keeping my job to perfection. I teared up my “time punch card” every time I got a new one, watch videos all day, hugged the lady boss to greet her in the morning, etc… to the point managers thought I might have a mental problem. However noticing that my co-workers were silently laughing their head off, hiding their faces happy faces behind their computers. It was like “Tomeo’s great office distraction” was on every day and it excited my colleagues while managers had me face the firing wall time and time over again.
Since my work was still irreproachable, they had to accept me or face the risk of losing me. My attitude was starting to trail and impregnated on a few others, specifically those whose confidence in their work and position was unbroken, they also started to unchain from what others thought of them, and putting aside their stress, they followed me in some crazy silly strips of waves of laughter and moments of courageous office adventures. We had fun, we brought results and there was nothing no one could do about it, except join the club or be left out. But the kick of the story came revealing when to push the experiment further, I went to the big boss and against anything she would say to try changing my mind, I decided to fire myself. That day, it was like if the floor was covered in clouds of rain, and my colleagues, men or women, I noticed, had they eyes watered in lights of sadness. That very night and just before the day’s work completion, I told everyone that “I was just kidding” and here again, we all went for drinks after hours, mocking the astonished blurry eyes and confused faces of managers when they thought I was leaving the company. Since then I would walk in every day at work and jokingly shout “I quit” at the managers’ faces to soon have others therapeutically do the same and every single morning it was touches of laughter to hear these words out of timid Japanese salarymen as if they were in control of their destiny for the day. It was like a celebration in the air at the thought of still being together at the end of troubles, like living life to the fullest… at the office.
It was refreshing to see how simple life can transform if the spirit leans on letting the conscience lead the way for a change, rather than that ever-present heart ego uncomfortable blockade that stops us from living life in the fullest on a daily basis. If we were to listen to our conscience carefully, in real time, we would automatically stop procrastination and reform such question habits of “What the heck am I doing here?” to reasonably asking oneself: “What am I gonna do to get me out of here” or if the job pleases: “What am I going to do to have fun today”. The funny thing about “fun” is that no one has fun unless “results” come about. Education and Celebration might as well be the sources, the fulfillment and the fluorescence of all that’s good in results, whether at work or at play and anything else in between, these 2 poles attract to where we should center, every single day of our life.
Bring your youngsters information and laughter, and you will produce magic out of them. Senior leaders talk about immaturity in young people, but an inspired young mind is never too immature to perform miracles. Test it out. The largest companies in the world today were started with young people barely graduated from college. Virgin Airlines, Microsoft, Apple, Google etc… Of course, at the advantage over the past reformers, we do live in a world of high technology and the comfort of fast communications. The expansion of a thought, service or product depends much on communicative skills. We wake up with all kind of expectations but we usually are simply happy about our day if we’ve learned something new or spent time in healthy communication with others. The standard frame for conventional corporate celebration is usually based on volume or status. But in that spectrum of temporary reality, the “ego” always gets a chunk of people’s moral wisdom until it has them running like peacocks, begging for attention and praise. The achievement of a good day must prove a result I suppose because there is no freedom without result. To generate the “willpower” that it takes to bring good results, an educated mind must center around a grateful heart, and that happens only when a purpose has been learned and celebrated.
It is true that some people are able to achieve some amazing results with their personal motivation and determination to succeed with their passion or their business. It’s interesting to think about it, but what do actually successful people do to help change people’s lives, especially those who suffer. And if they do try, what is the extent of their impact on societies in which they live in or the worlds far away they try to support. For example, many use Africa and poor people as a target to feed their heart with a goodwill spirit, which of course, is well intended and would probably help make someone somehow. It seems that the more you celebrate the more you learn and the more you learn, the more the more the chances to be instructed to a path of goodness. Unfortunately, those who succeed become too preoccupied with success than the struggle of taking responsibility to a worldly cause. Since we all have a good heart at the base, we do naturally want to fix things. But really if there were things to fix in this life, it would have to start with me.
